Default Leave Your Excuses Here

You know the ones: I had a busy week, my mom is sick, my dog died, my husband got laid off, there was no food in the house, there was too much food in the house, the hamster pooped on the rug, my kids are nuts, I started school, I started a new job, school ended, I lost my job...

These are all part of daily life, not an excuse or reason to put your health on the back burner. So the next time you feel yourself wanting to make an excuse or give a reason for something, come and dump it here and get back on track!

I'll start:

My sister is in labor so I have to drink wine and eat out of excitement and nervousness!

Work was slow so I ate more. Work is now busy so I'm too busy to prepare my lunches properly.

Now your turn!

I woke up late, so I don't have time to prepare breakfast or lunch for later.

It's too cold and rainy, so I can't possibly work out tonight.

My sister just had a baby so I can't go for my evening walk! (um, yeah, she just had the baby, not me. And I'm not with her so I can go for my walk.)

Two nights ago, I was up at 3:30 a.m. and that was that, so sleep deprived. Then, last night, one of my kid woke me up at 3:30 a.m.! Ugh! So, I'm beyond sleep deprived. This usually makes it super hard to stay on track.

I lost my job. I'm in school. My bank account is empty, my card was declined when trying to pay for my car insurance. AND it's finals week.

Whining mode ON! My husband smashed and totaled my motorcycle, so why do I need to work out anymore to look good on it...He fractured his skull and now I have to repeat things all the time because he forgets and that is frustrating and depresses me, I just want to stay in bed and not work out....we have to pull $5000 from our 401K to pay for medical bills and that is scary to think of our future...I have been stuck at around 150's for forever because I'm not trying hard enough because I'm weak - willed...It was so slow at work, I got bored and ate junk...it was so busy at work, I didn't have time to eat good food and ate junk...Good god, this WILL work, because I sound so damn weak I'm disgusting myself

(the really good news is that I have not listened to my whiny self and worked out 28 of the 30 days of November!)

Since March my dh has been battling afib problems with his heart. Multiple trips to the ER, days in the ICU, dozens of Drs. visits, tweaks in meds, ekgs, Nuclear ekgs, sleep studies. Next week we go to Denver to see a specialist in nerve ablation surgery for his heart.

And he is a ****ty, not proactive, whiny patient. I had to pick up the slack with a lot of work around the farm, plus my 45hr/week job, plus the stress of his royal drama king. Bleh. For the last week our vet tech at work has been on vacation, and with the holidays, it was crazy at work, and I'm exhausted.

Good thing, I went back to WW tonight and got all the new info, excited. Plus I've been working out again for several weeks and feeling better.

I have stayed really well on plan and things are going pretty smoothly these days -- and THAT'S what scares me! It's like I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop, CAN I keep this momentum going if ANY of the crap you all are going through happens?? It's just a matter of time before life happens, and it scares me!

Thanks for the thread, I really need to contemplate this!

I'm stressed and tired. Tired especially means I want to eat eat eat. The kids aren't sleeping through the night and get into bed with me, then kick and shove me. The dogs are getting on my nerves. I was at 151, but had a bad day yesterday so a large part of me says go ahead... you've messed up, eat more!!!

There are no more Honeycrisp Apples.

So, I guess a bowl of roasted, salted almonds will have to do. About the volume of a large apple.
